BU has implemented changes to streamline onboarding and provisioning for paid staff and faculty. These changes greatly simplify and speed up the process of granting BU email, employee self-service, wireless, and VPN access.

Employees automatically receive their account creation invitation to their personal email account once the BUworks hire form has been submitted and fully approved.

Managers and Form Submitters will receive email notifications of account setup reminders, successful setups, account disable/de-provisioning and I-9 reminders.

Managers are responsible for welcoming new employees to the BU community and guiding them through the administrative steps that come with a job transition. This includes everything from preparing a workspace for the employee to answering questions about BU’s campus. With your assistance, new team members can hit the ground running on their first day of work.

Human Resources can help with any questions about the onboarding process.

As a manager, you want to make your new employees feel welcome. It’s your responsibility to facilitate their seamless integration into the workplace and make sure they have all the tools and information they need to hit the ground running on their first day of work. Work with your recruiter to help with the onboarding process if you have any questions.
